Norwegian Oil Industry Safety Agency Orders Statoil ASA to Improve Safety at Heimdal Platform-Reuters

Monday, 4 Feb 2013 09:25am EST 

Reuters reported that the Norwegian oil industry safety agency announced that Statoil ASA must improve safety procedures at one of its North Sea platforms after a gas leak occurred there in May 2012. The Heimdal platform had to be evacuated in spring 2012 after the testing of two emergency shutdown valves went wrong, causing approximately3.5 tons (7,716 pounds) of gas leaking out onto the platform in approximately four minutes. In its order, the safety agency instructs Statoil to investigate why improvements ordered after a gas leak at another North Sea platform, Gullfaks B, in 2010 were not implemented at Heimdal. It also asks the Company for a plan on how it will implement the improvements at Heimdal, and that it should confirm a similar incident cannot take place at any other installations the Company operates off Norway. Statoil has time until March 1, 2013 to reply to the authority. Statoil holds a 39.44%-stake in Heimdal, which is now mainly a processing center for other fields, including Huldra, Skirne and Vale. Gas from the Oseberg field is also transported via Heimdal.
